1“For if, dear Adeimantus, our young men should seriously incline to listen to such tales and not laugh at them as unworthy utterances, still less surely would any man be to think such conduct unworthy of himself and to rebuke himself if it occurred to him to do or say anything of that kind, but without shame or restraint full many a dirge for trifles would he chant2 and many a lament.”
“ Fated to fall by the hands of Patroclus, Menoitius' offspring.
”Hom. Il. 16.433-434
